Track & Field opening day is right around the corner. Middle and long distance runners should be ramping up and following this off-season training plan. Sprinters, jumpers, and throwers should be getting in shape as well. 

Girls finish 5th at State in the Division 1 Championships!  Boys take 10th place in their race.  Best combined finish in school history.  Senior Brooke Starn finishes 2nd, qualifies to the Nike Cross Nationals meet next week in Portland.  Highest finish by an East Bay girl runner since 1989! 

Girls team is fastest ever at State by a Monte Vista team - by a whopping 4 minutes (team time).  Highest team finish as well.  Boys edge former Coach Bhavik's 2007 team to become fastest at MV as well.  Sr Tim Chrisman paces the group in 27th place.
